In the first game of the regular NBA season, the Portland Trail Blazers face off against the Sacramento Kings. It is a new day in Rip City with rookie head coach Chauncey Billups and a bench that is very different from last season’s. Billups believes the Blazers will be able to improve on defense, but after dropping all of their preseason games, fans are still waiting to see it.
